Travel Thursday: Florence by Bit of Ivory Photography

"As a former art teacher, Florence had me absolutely giddy. It was the center of so many artistic greats. To see Michelangelo's David statue (sadly no photographs of any kind were allowed) and just be in the birthplace of the Renaissance period strikes you in every emotional way. Some of the photos entail famous structures: Il Duomo/Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (the dome building and extension-- the dome is the largest brick dome in the world to ever be constructed) and Ponte Vecchio (the only bridge of its type after World War II-- Hitler ordered that the Ponte Vecchio could not be blown up, as it was too beautiful.)" -Chelsea of Bit of Ivory
